Faces

For the past few years I have moved away from depicting full figures in my drawings and paintings. Initially I relished the challenge of using the face as a vehicle for abstract and expressive art. Now I find myself creating faces that reflect my concern for others, particularly women, worldwide. Faces that are worried yet show bravery; fearful eyes that show strength; souls that face struggles and still reflect gratitude and hope. My ambition is that these paintings allow every individual to discover a unique meaning in these faces.
